Lil Monster’s InKtensity

card-1-140117

Ok, so when I stamped a sheet of watercolour paper the other day I stamped more than one of Lil Monster, so thought I’d better colour him and move him to the finished box of cards.  After using my new Peerless watercolours for the last few projects I went back to my favourites for colouring in – Inktense pencils by Derwent (they’re just so easy to use).

Very plain, possibly a little boring, but I don’t know another way that I’m comfortable with, so went with it!  Lil Monster is coloured using – Golden Yellow, Mustard, Amber, Dk Aquamarine, Sea Blue, and the floor, background and balloon with Neutral Grey.  The background and balloon was a combination of yellow and grey to create a very muted colour.  I used the Neutral on the balloon and allowed it to dry before brushing the watered down yellow over.  This time I left the image as is without adding any additional shading 🙂

I used the colour combo from the Color Throwdown challenge blog
